Black Desert, the popular MMORPG, has announced a slew of new content and features at its live Black Desert FESTA event. The game’s next Awakening, new regions, and a significant new conquest war feature are just a few of the exciting updates revealed.
Awakening of Maegu and New Boss Fight
The Awakened Maegu, set to arrive in the game on July 5th, is a new addition that wields a pair of fans in a dance-like manner, offering enhanced abilities with higher damage, CC, and range. Additionally, a new boss fight against a sea serpent known as Imoogi is also launching on July 5th. This challenging battle takes place on a small platform floating on water, where players must dodge attacks until they can strike back at Imoogi.
The 300v300 War of the Roses
A large-scale conquest war feature, the 300v300 War of the Roses, is coming to Black Desert. This feature has a simplified ruleset and doesn’t require buildings and forts, but it takes place on a much larger battlefield. Players can fight on land and sea and access a tactical map that shows friendly and enemy movements in real time, allowing commanders to issue orders. Korean players can expect its arrival on August 26th.
New Realm: Noble Ralm Ula Kita
Another feature coming to Korean players in August is a new realm called Noble Ralm Ula Kita. This region will feature four monster zones designed around group hunting, with rewards including Origin of Dark Hunger and a new treasure item.
Quality of Life Updates and In-Game Celebrations
Black Desert is also introducing several quality-of-life updates, including the removal of currents from sea travel and the end of pet levels. The game is celebrating the FESTA in-game with item codes, a hot time event, login goodies, and an earlier rocking horse transforming into a mount.
